1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My own Anthropologie-inspired capelet on: February 13, 2010 01:19:22 PM
Some years ago, this pattern became a great success and everybody was knitting their capelets. I was so sad, because I had no clue how to knit a stitch  Tongue

I finally learnt how to knit, and it was only logical that I came back to this pattern and made myself one  Wink I made it with two yarn balls a good friend gave to me a year ago, a merino/acrylic blend. I knitted it on 7mm needles

one of my cats helped me wind up the yarn

getting into shape!

new use for cable ties, lol

and a couple of action pictures Grin I decided to close it in the lower part instead of the neck, I'm waiting for a brooch from etsy to put there. it feels so warm!

oh my, thank you all for your kind comments!  Cheesy

jojobean76 - give me anything other than knit and purl and I would be hopeless, too, but... there's this wonderful place called youtube, where you write the knitting term, and tons of nice people appear on your screen, teaching you how to do it  Cheesy

SilkRose - don't give up, I'm sure your hands will end up doing things you never thought of  Wink
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Candle Flame Cowl - my first knit! :D on: February 10, 2010 05:30:51 AM
I learnt to knit because I always need something on my neck , and crocheted stuff wasn't really working for my tastes. Up to now I had only knit hats and scarfs for my dolls, but finally I took the step and made a cowl for the last cold days of winter

I used this pattern I found on Ravelry and, though I messed up in many places (which I have strategically placed in the back for the pictures), I'm quite happy with how it turned out. It's made in some Caron I had in my stash and knitted on 5mm dpns. It's so soft and warm!  Cheesy

And about to go to the street.

I feel so proud! I knit something I can actually wear  Grin

hey, I made one!  Grin I'm fairly new to knitting and I have used dpns, but to make tubes... I was scared to make a hat or a sock, mainly because I feared how to close the gap on dpns  Tongue then I saw your little tutorial... and I had to try it!

I made a hat for my doll, I simply used sock yarn on 3mm dpns without resizing the pattern. it worked like a charm and I am SO very please I actually made something I like! I messed a couple of times and rows, but nothing too noticeable for me

the hat

on my doll

and how it looks from the back side, in case somebody is wondering!

I can't thank you enough for posting this!

mine was done years ago (can't remember if in 2006 or 2007) and it's still there on the living room shelf, holding origami stars. if you pick it up, it still keeps its shape and it's quite sturdy

so many time in this forum, and I had not seen this thread before! I love the idea of making my own needles and spicing them up  Grin I will try this out this week to make some needles for me and some in-scale ones for my dolls.

I have some bamboo sticks for making brochettas that already have the points, I think they will make great 2mm needles

I want to try and make some circulars too, since in my city I can only find superlong circulars and for some projects I need shorter ones.

my picture is not as pretty as yours (I love all the apples inside!), I took it as I came back from the supermarket. I should have casted off with a bigger needle so that the mouth of the bag was more elastic and bigger, but it fits so many things inside anyway!

I was thinking about starting a KAL for this bag, so we could help other people facing the stitches. hmmm, I'll think about it again when I start the next one

congrats on the great bag! I love the brown you used. brown and green have to be the most earth-friendly colors, hehe

I looked at the pattern and me, being a newbie knitter, managed to produce a bag too  Grin so don't be scared of those strange stitches... they are quite fun, once you frog for the bajillionth time and know how to make them!
